Incinerator Charity Grants Launched
8:06am 7th September 2014
A search is starting to find people who will help improve clay country after the giant incinerator is built.
As part of the deal a charity's being set up to help people in St Dennis and Nanpean - with two hundred thousand pounds to distribute in the first year alone.
Many locals joined a campaign to try to block the burner being built.
Now St Dennis and St Stephen Parish Councils are setting up the Community Trust which will be responsible for awarding funding to local projects.
The seven local residents will be responsible for representing local people and their priorities and will join six trustees appointed from the two parish councils in assessing grant applications and awarding funds to deserving projects.
Councillor Julia Clarke, Chairman of St Dennis Parish Council, said: “In the first year the Trust will be responsible for around £200,000, so people becoming trustees can make a real difference to this area. We are looking for positive people who can put their energy into getting this going. ”
Trustees should be aged 18 or over and live within the parish of St Dennis or Nanpean, Treviscoe, Goonabarn, Stepaside, Trethosa, Gothers and Enniscaven.
Cornwall Councillor Fred Greenslade added: "This is the culmination of a lot of work by the Parish Councils and Cornwall Council working together to set up this company to deliver the funds. Several exciting ideas have already come forward and no doubt there will be more.
“Don’t forget that St Dennis Parish Council is already open for grants to help with any educational needs from the £15,000 per year Education Grant for persons in the St Dennis and Nanpean Division.”
Letters containing further details will be sent to householders in the area and anyone interested is asked to register their name and address with Wendy Yelland, Clerk to St Dennis Parish Council, by 9 September.
Wendy can be contacted via ClayTAWC, Fore Street, St. Dennis Cornwall PL26 8AF or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
